Funky, famous and Fun Italian Restaurant that takes its' food but not its decor seriously. Walls are graffiti-ed ceiling to floor and crayons are provided at every table. Pizza, pasta and salad were excellent. A really fun find.

This is a hidden restaurant that locals showed us, serving typical Italian food with good standard. We tried pizza, salads and pasta, all very tasty. We will come back.

We ordered 2 pizzas and there were really tasty. The only think is that it's a bit expensive....I mean 20 Franks for me sounds a lot. But the quality is really good. The whole place also is wonderful by a special way :)More
